of course. look at the devastating power that he knocks out his opponents with. any other ref that calzaghe had in britain would've stopped the fight after he lnaded his first 3 slaps on the gloves
No wonder they didn't call him The Welsh George Foreman.

I think you are mistaken a rib injury for the broken hand he got in training which prohibited sparring prior to the fight. Kessler wouldn't pull out because he and the Palles felt that Frank Wa rren would cancel the fight.

IMO Joe landed a shot right where it hurts the most and Kessler was visibly shaken, but not close to being KO'ed.

He was certainly hurt, and i dont blame fishface Frank for going frantic at ringside when the ref interfered.

Calzaghe frankly speaking was feather fisted so of course NO, he could not KO Kessler, maybe floored but defnitely not KO

The broken hand where Kessler said after the fight that there was no hand problem and also said before the fight that he doesnt know where that rumour came from. That broken hand.
Hasnt Kessler postponed his fight with Steiglitz for less?

I've already proven the injured hand story for you on a couple of occasions so why are you suddenly again putting forth the same old arguments?

Howcome you are in doubts again?

You havent proven anything. As said the only facts of the account I know is where Kessler said there is no problem before the fight and the hand wasnt a problem after the fight

Joe hit 2 times behind the head on purpose so nothing wrong with referee here!

Graham Houston has confirmed it. Several articles has been posted for example this from the scene:

Quote:

Asked about rumors of an injured right hand before his loss to Calzaghe, Kessler showed off a scar running from knuckle to wrist where surgery to repair the hand had clearly taken place.
Pictures from hospital used to be on Kessler's web.


Now deal with it fanboy.

No kidding. Kessler has a decent chin, that much is clear after the Froch fight.

Calzaghes strategy against Kessler (nor any of his other opponents) was never to knock them out but just to reign slap punches over them and 'overwhelm' them by throwing cotton balls at them basically.

Never seen any details other than what you claim. But as said, I have seen and own a copy of the fight where at the pre fight interviews Kessler says he doesnt know where that rumour comes from and that there is no problem and the post fight interview where Kessler said there was no hand problem.

I think you must be the fanboy with something to deal with, as you keep making claims without proof, when the fighter himself said different.

You have to accept Kessler lost and move on
